A small factory where workers are paid very little and work many hours in very bad conditions:
Clothes that are made and sold cheaply, so that people can buy new clothes often:
Instead of having two seasons, fast fashion gives us new variations on T-shirts and jeans every week.
The underwear we sell is about luxury, not fast fashion.

When people in the West throw their clothes away, their cast-offs often go on a journey east, across the oceans, to India’s industrial interior. From the Kutch District of western India to the northern city of Panipat, garment recyclers turn into yarn the huge bales of clothes that come from people and places distinctly strange. With little exposure to Western culture other than the Discovery Channel, the garment recyclers rely on their imagination and the rumours that travel with the cast-offs to create an an intriguing perspective on the West.

No one wants to support child, forced or sweatshop labour. Yet, how many of us actually know how and where our clothing is made? Let’s use our buying power and our voices to change the direction the fashion and clothing industry is taking the world, and help end exploitation.
Trisha was born in and spent the first sixteen years of her life in India. As a little girl, Trisha was always burdened by the stark differences in living standards between the ‘rich’ and ‘poor’ and the ill treatment of the most vulnerable in society. This burden only grew as she became more aware of the world and its many problems until finally, she decided to leave India in search of answers. Armed with the desire to understand the world and the determination to develop the knowledge and skills needed to be a part of the solution, she came to Australia in 2004. Trisha is passionate about culture, education, freedom and equality. She is also passionate about finding smart, inclusive, culturally sensitive and sustainable answers to big issues such as gender inequality, poverty, education and exploitation. It was in pursuit of these goals that she began studying Economics at James Cook University, a decision that continually challenges her and broadens her mind.
